Tommy Bahama, a lifestyle brand that defines elegant tropical living with men’s and women’s sportswear, golfwear, swimwear, accessories and a complete home furnishings collection, has introduced a new collection of fabrics that includes Sunbrella brand performance fabrics.
The new fabrics, which were inspired by tropical settings from around the world, are being made available to the trade through Silver State, a leading decorative distributor based in Salt Lake City, Utah, and to consumers through Calico Corners, which operates 115 stores in 32 states plus the District of Columbia.
“The Tommy Bahama collection continues our emphasis on elevating the styling sophistication of Sunbrella fabrics,” said Greg Rosendale, residential furniture fabrics manager for Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, the makers of Sunbrella. “Professional interior designers and consumers alike will be drawn to the colors and textures of these luxurious fabrics.”
Sunbrella decorative fabrics are the latest addition to the Tommy Bahama Home collection which includes: home furnishings; outdoor furniture; rugs and floor coverings; bed, bath and table linens; ceiling fans along with flatware, ceramics and glassware.
“These new fabrics bring two great brands together, combining tropical lifestyles reflected in the Tommy Bahama brand with the performance attributes of Sunbrella,” Rosendale said. “Best of all, Tommy Bahama has established channels for easy access by design professionals and consumers.”
